Here is a perfect example of why we stage homes. Staging is all about making the photos on the MLS look their best. Certain items just don’t photograph well and can end up being more distracting than helpful. This is when it’s hard not to offend homeowners by replacing their expensive items but I just tell them to pack things up so they can be enjoyed again in their home. When we are ‘decorating’ our home we don’t care how it looks in photos, we acquire things because we love them or they have a special meaning for us and that is the way it should be!
